It isn’t a secret that zombie games are addictive. The’re a unique combination of quests, survival, and horror all incorporated into one development. Nintendo DS is a popular platform for games of this kind thanks to the two displays, the fact the navigation is easier and a player has more possibilities.

The game is dark and full of scary moments where you’ll have to think with your brain fully engaged. The plot is detailed and loaded with fun elements which is something we like and last but not least, this is a first person game so you use the second display to control the weapons, vision etc. Some of you may know this game as Silent Hill. Though that should have been its title but it was eventually changed.
Resident Evil Deadly Silence
As you would expect, a Resident Evil game must be on the list. This particular version was released in 2006 for Nintendo DS and it is developed in honor of the first game as a tenth anniversary edition. The basic gameplay stays the same but the game brought several improvements and modifications. First of all, now you can use the stylus pen to stab a zombie and to defeat it. There are all kinds of weapons and even more monsters.
One of the main advantages are the modes of the game. The first one is a classic mode which is basically a story mode. You’ll navigate the character through the game and defeat all the enemies and monsters. The second mode is rebirth mode where you have more puzzles to solve and harder gameplay. The last mode is multiplayer where you can use a LAN connection to play with up to 4 players at the same time.
